Pardon my tongue everyone – I mean no disrespect. I’m Tux, a 50-55 pound neutered Husky/Shepherd mix. I was living in the same home as my pal Dylia, so we share like circumstances. Not to worry…I won’t repeat her clumsy attempt at humor. My introduction to SOAR amounted to a romp with Dylia in the exercise yard before I ever got to my kennel. I thought it was a good start. After I unpack and have something to eat – and maybe a nap – I’ll start checking out the other dogs and the humans. See you around.

My name is Dylia and my story is quite the moving one. That’s right, for you see my humans were moving and I wasn’t going to be moving with them. Okay, okay, so much for the bad humor, but hopefully you will at least appreciate my Border Collie good looks. I just need to trim off a few extra pounds and I will be gorgeous. The good folks at SOAR will hopefully take care of that for me. I am spayed, and have spent almost all of my time indoors with the same family since I was a puppy. I do enjoy a good walk, though. Today I was out on the walking path with Zoey and it went quite well. You could be next. Keep me in mind if you’re looking.

Hey, hey, it’s “The Murph” – 40 pounds of Treeing Walker Hound (and maybe something else) coming to you alive and well from this bucolic little outpost they call SOAR. Me, Kyra, and Zoey landed here on Columbus Day after setting sail from our former Animal Protective Services homeland out in Supply. Me and Ms. Kyra had just gotten altered out at this Fix-A-Friend place, and did she tell you…we find out that we have Heartworm. Yes, it’s a bummer. The treatments put a crimp in our style for just a little while but taking it easy is what Walker Hound types like to do a lot of anyway. So now, treatments complete, I am good to go. Come check me out.

Zoey here. For weeks and weeks at Animal Protective Services I watched that SOAR van come and go and now finally I will have to watch no more. This place is nice and green, the air is fresh, and you can watch all the ‘comings and goings’ in a country setting while you wait for the big break. Beautiful. Oh yeah, sorry, so about me – I am a young Lab mix girl with maybe a dash of Border Collie, 40-45 pounds, spayed and UTD on vaccinations. I heard some of the SOAR people saying I remind them of a smaller Baby - another Lab girl who lived here for a long time until she got her big break in June. I’ll just have to take their word for it. I am pretty athletic, and big on exercise – catch my 11/11/15 video post on Facebook - so I am hoping to find a home where I can be active. See you when you get here.

Move over Oliver and Dixie, Zackie’s in town – and I’m ready to take my place as just another Animal Protective Services transplant destined to strike gold at SOAR. Yes fans, before you could say “October”, I was Heartworm tested, neutered, and pronounced “ready to roll.” In case you were wondering, I’m pretty much all grown up – a solid 35-40 pounds of happy-go-lucky Boxer mix. The welcome mat is out…

Hiya folks…Oliver (SOAR Oliver No. 2, that is) reporting in from my new digs here at Camp SOAR. I came in from Animal Protective Services in July with my good buddy Jed. Now you can say I’m Blue Tick Hound, or you can say I’m Border Collie – you can even say I’m a Pointer or Dalmation (sort of) – just don’t say you won’t put me on your short list of potential additions to your family. I am neutered and UTD on vaccinations. I just love attention – the more the better, and I’m ready for some of yours.

Hello. I am Dixie, a 9-year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix, spayed and up to date on my shots. If I look familiar, it may be because you saw me on the back cover of PawPrints Magazine a couple of years back. I was Pet of the Month you see for 12 consecutive issues. Most recently, you might have spotted me strutting my stuff in the 2014 Oak Island Christmas By The Sea parade. A sweetie when I came to SOAR with my 3 babies in 2008, I am just as sweet today – as long as we are not talking cats, that is. They are not safe around me. A nice couple adopted me during my first year at SOAR. They had to bring me back after 6 months, not because I was bad, but because I was just a little too much for them to handle back then. These were some of their comments on the surrender form: “Sweet”, “loving”, “smart”, “knows commands”, “good with other dogs”, “very social”; “too strong for old person.” All true then and still true today. Don’t miss my video on our Facebook page – 11/24/14 – catch me at one of my favorite things to do — running after the ball with my ex-SOAR pal Baby and flashing my soccer moves. Won’t you give me the break I’ve been very patiently awaiting? I won’t disappoint.

Hi! I am Allie, a 6-year old Wirehaired Terrier mix, about 50-55 pounds. I have had quite the presence lately at SOAR adoption events, so you may well recognize me. My past life caused me some anxiety for sure, but SOAR came to my rescue and my days seem a lot sunnier now, as I am pretty much a happy-go-lucky girl, chasing balls, going on walks, getting belly rubs, and getting brushed. Yes, I am enjoying the company of the volunteers, but my earlier experiences have left me a little jumpy sometimes – most often around men that I am not familiar with. I like most of the dogs here–Baby Bear was my favorite, then Benji and I ‘buddied up’ but he’s moved on, so I’m looking again. Just don’t try to buddy me up with any of the little bitty dogs out there. Cats are not generally my cup of tea either, though as of 11/2015 I am living in a foster home where I am getting along with the resident cat. Please call SOAR to arrange for a visit or two so we can really get acquainted. Then maybe we can go to your home???
